@Girvin - there is no place that I've seen the report builder be that
slow and not have an installation problem - not saying it is impossible
but sounds really odd. 1500 records in a tabular report, 49 seconds is a
long time for that actually. There is one exception to that, graphics -
is your report including graphics stored in data fields?
On the other hand Calc, as has been pointed out, might be your preferred
I understand what you are saying, but I installed the LO 3.5.2 binary
(RPM) packages from the LO website. I repackaged them for Slackware,
but that does not change the 1s and 0s, just unpacks the RPMs and
re-packages the files into a Slackware package for installation.
Therefore, if there is an installation problem, it seems to be in the LO
packages. Note that I am using the Report Builder bundled into LO, not
the version from the extensions website. I do believe the newest is
1.2.1 rev 2, and the one in LO is still 1.0-something. I have not tried
to replace the bundled version with the 1.2 version.
I could live with 49 _"seconds"_. However, it is taking 49 _minutes_
for my report. My database is nothing special, just text and integer
values. Nine elements plus the key per record. No graphics. So, yes,
this problem does sound unusual. However, I have not been able to pin
down the problem yet. In the meantime, I am looking into using Calc to
print my data. It looks good and will do until I can get RB working.
BTW: The report is a simple text page header, Detail, and page footer,
no graphics there either. I do have the date and time fields in the
header, but that shouldn't bring it down. Actually, I do have some
separator lines inserted at the bottom of the header and the bottom of
each Detail line. Page number at the bottom of the footer. That's it.
Thanks for the help.
